ZIAD NAWFAL // Battiti Rai3 Italy // 16 Oct 2011

In September 2011, I had the good fortune of traveling to Rome for work. I had the even better fortune at staying at my friends’ Mike Cooper and Maria Galante’s house (more like a cavern of Ali Baba, actually)… Mike arranged for us to appear on an Italian radio program called BATTITI [Beats]. A lovely fellow by the name of Pino Saulo interviewed the two of us for an hour or so, and I played music from both the Ruptured catalogue and other Lebanese labels that I’m fond of (Al Maslakh, Annihaya, Johnny Kafta’s Kids Menu, etc.).

Track listing:
MUNMA: Bits and Dust, from “Previews & Premises” – Ruptured  #002
TAREK ATOUI: Un-drum #3, from “The Ruptured Sessions #2” – Ruptured #003
JOSEPH GHOSN: Drone 1, from “Je Veux Voir (OST)” – Incognito
SCRAMBLED EGGS: See You In Beirut, from “Peace Is Overrated But War Misunderstood” – Ruptured #004
